Staff in Year 1
Reading at home
Within the classroom there are four areas of continuous provision: writing, phonics, topic and mathematics. Outside the classroom, in the shared area, there are another four areas: creative, construction, roleplay and malleable.
Reception and Year 1 areas are planned together to ensure the continued development of key skills such as; letter and number formation, place value, independent writing and reading. Alongside this, the challenges embed learning across all area of the curriculum,
All the areas have a challenge set each week aimed at particular groups of children.
Using continuous provision allows teachers and teaching assistants to work with smaller groups of children, giving each child the opportunity for deeper understanding and greater progress within lessons. Having a large number of EAL children within the cohort, working together in smaller groups enables the children to become more active learners.
